STEEL PRICES RISE:
The carbon steel market is poised to grow by 699.35 MT during 2020-2024 progressing at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period." (Source: Business Wire)
This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Skid Steer Basics Skid Steer Root Grapple Attachment
The Skid Steer Root Grapple by Skid Steer Basics is extremely vital in the forestry industry today and it's quickly become a standard among contractors. The attachment slides along the top of the ground without digging in, avoiding underground damage. Equipped with Parker brand hoses, fittings and couplers, and works on skid steers up to 75 horse power.
Performs 3 jobs in one:
-In a single pass the root grapple rakes away debris, keeps it in a manageable pile to move around with ease, and the bottom bar provides the necessary tool for backfill. Load or pile logs, brush, rocks, demolition debris, and many other materials.
-Ideal for separating dirt from rocks, lumber or building material with ease. Designed with a larger capacity means less loading and will save you both time and energy. Lower your labor cost and shorten project schedules.
-Enclosed cylinders and hoses come standard to minimize maintenance and increase durability. The tines curve upward in order to slide across the land without damaging topsoil or catching utility lines or cables.
